Happy Six Month Birthday

People told me having children would take over your life.  What I hadn’t expected was that it means every waking hour!  Even those hours you can’t sleep in, and it’s because I’m a mother that I just can’t sleep! You spend the first months of your child’s life adapting to …

Sensory play

It’s a job I’ve been meaning to get on with for a fair few months! Time to make some sensory bottles for Robot to play with:  I have had six oasis bottles saved on the bench especially for the task.  Today I completed two of them! 1. (Left) is a …

Five Month

We tried out our first YHA as a family, Grinton Lodge in North Yorkshire.  The Robot got his first snow while there!  Very magical!  It was such a lovely adventure as this was the only part of the country with snow, just when we happened to be there!  I enjoyed …

Four Month

Feel very blessed to have my little man.  I also don’t have any great adventures to tell of, life being a Mum is all fitting into place and we are getting on with it all!!  Robot now weighs 13lb13oz (6.29kg).

Finger spelling 

The first lesson from britishsign.co.uk.  Leaning to finger spell.  Who knew that when I was a GirlGuide all those years ago that I would learn something that would also come up 17 years later!  I’ve picked this up surprisingly easy and chuffed that I can go through the whole alphabet …
